About the Women’s Committee

The Women’s Committee supports the Cincinnati Art Museum by offering informative programs for members, exploring art around Cincinnati, promoting participation in museum activities, and raising funds. Since its inception in 1973, the Women’s Committee has financially assisted with art purchases, exhibitions, and other museum needs. 

The annual Membership includes monthly luncheons and meetings to hear various experts discuss current exhibitions, some aspect of the museum’s collection, or taking an off-site tour to a collection of interest. 

Luncheons take place on the fourth Monday of each month from September through April.
